Sunset on a Ghost Town

As the sky began to change and late afternoon turned to evening, I made my way to the ruins of the old Chisos Mining Company in Terlingua, Texas. It was such a peaceful evening. I felt lucky to be able to experience such a magical place.

    Wow, this is great, Anne! Love all the details and such in the empty outlines of the buildings. That 3rd shot has something bright red in the window there… a drape perhaps?… anyways, it drew my eye straight away to it. Love this, my friend!

      Hi Toad, the bright red is actually a red light. I asked my husband Ray to go inside and direct the light to the back wall and out that one window. We didn’t have a very powerful light though. I would like to try it again with a stronger light, but I like the effect too. He’s such a good photo assistant 😉

    Hi Anne,

    I’ve been enjoying your posts – I particularly like the images of the ghost town in Texas. They take me back to when as a young boy and I watched the western movies.

    Enjoy your journey. Keep the images coming!

      Hi Chris, it is light painting. I asked my husband to go inside the ruin and during the long exposure he used a red light to light the back wall and the window. It wasn’t a very powerful light though so it wasn’t quite the effect I wanted. It turned out more subtle but still ok. Thanks for your comments!
